Serves 2


Step 1

Add your chicken breasts into a bowl, add your harissa and some fresh lemon juice. Then, add in 1/2tsp of salt, pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, ground cumin, and rosemary. Mix all of it in then cover the bowl and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes

Step 2

Once they’ve marinated, place into a medium hot pan for around 3 minutes on each side to get some colour then remove from the pan and set aside

Step 3

Spoon some butter into the pan and your diced onion. Stir and fry your onion for a few minutes, then add your diced garlic and add ½tsp smoked paprika, ground cumin and rosemary. Stir this around for a minute with the spices

Step 4

Add in your Orzo and stir and fry for a further two minutes. Pour in a small amount of chicken stock and scrape any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Then add in the rest of your stock

Step 5

Bring to a simmer then add in some wholegrain mustard, grana Padano cheese, peas and crème fraiche. Stir it all around until combined, then lay in the two chicken breasts before placing in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes

Step 6

Remove the garlic flatbread from its packet and place into the oven for 10 minutes. After the 15 minutes, remove the orzo pan from the oven and take off the chicken breasts to rest for 5 minutes, before slicing into thin strips. Finally, remove the garlic bread as well and use a cookie cutter to make the heart shapes before assembling the dish
